Now here's an interesting proposition for anyone with an empty lot near Glen Head, Long Island and $90,000 in spare cash:
Free House on Long Island? Yes, There's a Catch
Free house attracts plenty of bidders
Manhattan restaurateur Tony Spiridigliozzi bought the house last July for $820,000 but decided he wanted to tear it down and build new. His real estate agents -- Brix and Cliff and Stella Hetzer -- talked him into giving the house away.
If it works, the plan would save one of the oldest houses on Townsend Street, two blocks of modest homes built two or three generations ago.
It's too bad people in Queens never do this.
